You are welcome to contribute, add to and extend Diaspora however you see fit. We will do our best to incorporate everything that meets our guidelines.
We need you to fill out a contributor agreement form before we can accept your patches. The agreement gives Diaspora joint ownership of the patch so the copyright isn't scattered. You can find it here.
All commits must be tested, and after each commit, all tests should be green before a pull request is sent. Please write your tests in Rspec.
GEMS: We would like to keep external dependencies unduplicated. We're using Nokogiri, Mongomapper, and EM::HttpRequest as much as possible. We have a few gems in the project we'd rather not use, but if you can, use dependencies we already have.
The privacy aware, personally controlled, do-it-all, open source social network.
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS PRE-ALPHA SOFTWARE AND SHOULD BE TREATED ACCORDINGLY. PLEASE, DO NOT RUN IN PRODUCTION. IT IS FUN TO GET RUNNING, BUT EXPECT THINGS TO BE BROKEN
Some initial installation instructions are here.
We are continuing to build features and improve the code base. When we think it is ready for general use, we will post more final instructions.
